Let the whole matter al and he feit that the result would be franght wlth prosperlty to our State, and to the besl Interests of the people. It is Imposslble to glve a correct or adéqu ite sy of Mr. Kingslcy's brief remftrkg, i rery word ofwhl consternatlon to the hearts of the fVirnrls of railroad ald, V of hls remarks u-as drie totbe venerable and commandlng appearanct: of the speaker, tlie Inimitable marnier of !

I it nall d'.-ivcü Into the coffln of ruilroad ni;!, aud galned at least four negntive votes as the reaalt demonatrated. It was ourgood fürtuue to be present and hear Judg-e Kinoslbt, tind we eau bear teetimony that he straclc telÜDg blows against tho doctrine of luunicipal aid, in faror of individual ríghts, and agaisist ctiiiferriiig upon the majority tho power to tx tho uiiiiority for private euterprises. Tho speoch, was at onco humoroiis and coavinciug.

If Congresa has done these tbings, r.nd without robuke, are e not jnstiüed in especting a eimilar cotirse froni a Kiulicül Michigan turo? In fact, did not tbe very Legislature now n session mako haste to ra!ify tho XVtli. amcnduient nftcr the people had declared at tho ballot bnx agaiost negro suffrage, and thus " deieated tho plaiii'y cxprcssed will cf the pcoplo ?" If thi.s tliing can be dono once wiih impunity it cali agaiu.

It is moro than gratifica that tho " innocent bondholders " have boon provided for, even thoagh they are compelled to earry the dead-weiglit of So,0ü0,000 or moro of unearned bondf, and commenda the Legislaturo for its vvell doing. It would huva been, a littlo more tickled had future aid buen provided for, but as t if, gritis a broad grin of satisfacción. Well, " let it laugb wliilo it niny."
